Description

Fedora Spade: The Last Job is the fourth and final game in the series of adventure games starring rogue detective Fedora Spade. The final game ties up some loose ends by revisiting a case mentioned in the earlier games: the Crimson April case about how Spade shot his partner Tex. Just like the previous titles, as an investigative adventure game, players need to examine environments, interrogate suspects and have evidence researched. Unlike other games the game cannot be completed through trial an error. Certain clues are shown in the environment and cannot be found otherwise. Also, players need to dissect the case and motives and are often prompted to directly type in an answer, rather than using items in the inventory.

The gameplay elements and quirky characters remain intact, but the major difference with the previous games is that it has been split up into two parts, as separate game files. In the first part the player is Daphne Marshall, Spade's former partner who has left the force to become an assistant at Hunter Investments. She is soon suspected of killing her boss Rachel Hunter while she retraces the Crimson April case. The second part is played as Spade. Players cannot access it right away but need to answer a passcode in order to start the game. Spade mostly needs to prove Daphne's innocence and get the real culprit behind bars.

There are many returning characters such as Baldie, Theo, Bong and Charlie, but also a lot of new ones such as ninja-masked flamenco dancer, the detectives Gianni and Versace, and the chief of police who is fascinated by playing the violin. Also, Daphne can access the computer in the office to do research, while Spade will need to do all the research in the field.

Files

Splitting the game into two separate game files for the part was not intentional, it happened due to a bug where the developer was forced to split the game into separate files.
